Directed by Kevin Gordon / 72 min.

True Son follows 22-year old Stanford graduate Michael Tubbs’ campaign for Stockton, CA city council in a year of impending bankruptcy and record homicides. For Michael Tubbs, a Stockton native born to a teenage mother and incarcerated father, engaging with youth is crucial to solving Stockton’s problems. In a remarkable election campaign, Michael rallied hundreds of young Stockton residents between the ages of 14-21 to join his movement to Reinvent Stockton. 

Preceded by Leadway (dir. Robbie Fisher & Dudley Percy Olsson / 10 min.) - Set in a small town in the rural Mississippi Delta, this short film by two women directors traces the emotional journey of Cindi Quong Lofton, a Chinese American woman, as she deals with the violent death of her father, an iconic figure in the community known simply by the name of his store -- Leadway. Though devastated by his death, Cindi responds in a way that shows both courage and resilience, and binds her even more closely to her struggling community.
